I am looking to move into Kegs, and I already have the luxury of a fridge… so I am looking to see what the best layout of Kegs in the fridge is. What I have found is that my shelves are 24 inches deep and 28 inches wide. My thought is to put thee kegs on their side across the fridge shelf.
However, in looking through the internet, I have seen two different sizes for corny kegs listed: One is 9” dia, 23” tall. The other is 25” tall and 8.5” dia in dimension. Based on limited number of samples, it appears that Pin Lock kegs are 9x23 consistently, and Ball Lock kegs are 8.5x25 consistently.
So I am looking to find out if the dimension difference is based on keg style, or if the dimensions are somewhat random. Also, if Pin/Ball locks are different dimensions, but consistent … how hard is it to get/find parts for pin lock vs ball lock? (The majority of places I see online have ball lock parts)
Thanks for sharing the wisdom!
